Hello from HK

Hi, I just joined. Owned a 2011 F4R.. Love the bike but lately the instrument panel is playing up and I was wondering if I need to replace it, dealer quote about US$1,700 .


I can start the engine but some of the display is fading out. Appreciate any advise on the problem.



Thanks in advance



Nick

Hello & Welcome

I am afraid that I can not help with the dash problem, but I am sure there are plenty on here who will be able to help.

Welcome.

In your manual is a section for choosing and setting the NIGHT/DAY mode. It changes colors and contrast of the screen.

That is the first place is would go and play with the settings.

The next thing I would do, if the first was not satisfactory, would be to remove the dash, clean its electrical connects and reinstall to see if that helps.

Thanks for the inputs guys.. I have added my location to the profile which is in HK, apology if there is a delayed in my response to your messages because of time different.

I have played around with the night/day mode but it did not solve the problem.. Not sure if you can see it from the photos. Part of the display is clear and part of it is not clear ie the word "Gear" is a bit blurry and in night mode the top right hand corner of the screen does not show any text at all. I spoke to the MV rep in HK he said the dash is old which explain why some of the text is not showing up.

I will follow silentservice703 advise and strip out the dash, although that have to wait until mid July as unfortunately I will be traveling for the next three weeks. Is there a workshop manual showing the step to stripping out the dash ? I checked the owner's manual but no information on it.

Thanks for the help
